pete shelley’s zx spectrum

Bit dated, no? Most of all, I’ve forever been curious for those ZX Spectrum computer graphics “which displayed in time with the music” of Pete Shelley’s “XL1” lp (1983) … Didn’t find anything on YT but did find a few screenshots via the links below … not very encouraging. Oh well. Below is the first track I heard by Shelley (beyond Buzzcocks) … to me it’s still his best solo work – “Witness the change” (coproduced by Martin Rushent, 1981).

daphne oram

Before Delia Derbyshire, there was Daphne Oram … one of thé pioneers at the BBC Radiophonic Workshop. Today, her Oramics machine is – mutatis mutandis – available as an iPhone app, while the (long lost) actual machine has become an important piece at the (London) Science Museum, where a special exhibition is still open until 2012-12-01.
